Bigger on the Inside.

It’s been a long three weeks.

Three weeks since I last had the 10.5 iPad, and I’ve come across so many issues when I had to use my MacBook Air during this time.

But last week, my new iPad Pro arrived. The 12.9″ 256GB Cellular model.

Before we continue, the below will be some impressions on how I use the iPad, and how the new features have benefitted me. The last part will be two incidents I’ve been running into, and I wanted to show the perspectives of both and my wishes for them.

Let’s go.

Apple Watch & iPad, sitting in a tree…

I wasn’t hoping for much this year at WWDC. The writing has been on the Apple Wall that there’s been a greater need for improvements in quality towards all of their Operating Systems as of late.

With watchOS, this wasn’t needed, just some features that have been requested since we’ve all become accustomed to those taps on our wrists since 2015.

With version 5 announced at WWDC, the time has now come to say goodbye to a model of the Apple Watch, namely the ‘Series 0’ model, which began the Apple Watch when it first launched, and one that I also own.

To me it’s understandable, but also slightly puzzling, as i was hoping for some kind of service to help update the Watch you’ve spent hundreds (or thousands when it came to the gold edition), so that it’s still relevant on your wrist.

Alas, I’m now looking at current models, alongside the standard rumours of what could be coming for Series 4, to see what these new models could benefit me, to ease the pain of spending all that money on one again.

In all honesty, I’ve struggled.

Announcing ‘The Outpost Issue’.

Even though the site here looks as though its been left alone, you couldn’t be more wrong.

The Outpost Show has been growing faster than I thought it would, and I’m currently in the midsts of finishing off a post about the Tomb Raider Suite Reception from April.

But for a while, I’ve been wanting to do a newsletter of short thoughts, but also with contributors.

Which is why The Outpost Issue is here!

It will be a fortnightly e-mail on a Friday, which will go to your e-mail of choice.

The main themes will be what Outpost has always been.

  • Games.
  • Tech.
  • Gin.

Alongside guest columns from great writers. At least I think so.

Subscribe right here, and you will receive the issue, until you decide its too much to take.

Guesting on Tim Chaten’s ‘iPad Pros’ Podcast.

After a long lull, podcasts have made a massive comeback in the last 2 years. Nowadays, you can find almost any subject matter you like from them, and hear from podcasts that go from 5 minutes an episode, to a 4 hour marathon.

Last week I was asked to be on Tim Chaten’s podcast about iPads, and the episode came out last week.
It was a fun hour, where I explained further about how AirPower could work through an iPad Smart Case and power AirPods when closed, alongside using iPads in the workplace.
